      An Evening with Bruce Cockburn at Golden State Theatre

      Golden State Theatre presents Bruce Cockburn on Saturday, November 23, at 8pm. Tickets are $29-$55. For more information and to purchase tickets, please click here.

      Canadian singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn has released 33 albums in his 4 decades of making music for the public and is the recipient of 12 JUNO Awards. His most recent album, Bone On Bone, gained him a Canadian Folk Music Award for Solo Artist of the Year.

      Bone On Bone, Bruce Cockburn’s 33rd album, arrives with 11 new songs, including “3 Al Purdys,” a brilliant, six-minute epic that pays tribute to Purdy’s poetry. Cockburn explains its genesis: “I went out and got Purdy’s collected works, which is an incredible book. Then I had this vision of a homeless guy who is obsessed with Purdy’s poetry, and he’s ranting it on the street. The song is written in the voice of that character. The chorus goes, ‘I'll give you three Al Purdys for a twenty dollar bill.’ ...The spoken word parts of the track are excerpts from Purdy’s poems. After that, once the ice was broken, the songs just started coming.”
